you call anyone, every time i call anyone, the nsa gets information about that call. there has been extension reporting about e-mails, about log on and off your computer, about google searches and all in the name of protecting us from foreign attacks. i'm glad the nsa does its job well with regard to determining or avoiding or defeating foreign attacks. that does not in any way justify the pervasive spying on americans that's been reported on now for the last two months. >> john: is it going to work, congressman? do you think it will put public fears on american citizens to rest because this will give us the illusion or at least the impression that our government is doing this purely to protect americans? >> listen, americans are relatively intelligent people and i don't think you can fool them to that degree. no one could possibly believe that the nsa should get a report if every time they called their pizzeria and asked for a pepperoni deep dish pizza and somehow that's meant to protect them from al-qaeda. that doesn't make any sense at all. that's the system we live under right n
is all this sub at her final to distract us from the n.s.a. scandals. david gregory would not ask that tough a question on meed the press. >> good to jay for that, good on jay in the old slang. a president risks that sort of thing. when nixon went on, everything had to be cleared beforehand, and they threw out his charming people, i called them, that would go over questions and throw out press questions that he was not to be asked. not that nixon, i'm sorry, the great un indicted co-conspirator had anything to hide, god knows. >> well, and you were on his enemies list. >> well, i hate to disappoint you. i saw a copy of the alleged enemies list and although i didn't make it, i did one day have the shock of being met by a mysterious limousine in los angeles, the beginning of a mystery novel. a guy sits down beside me, i don't know who he is, they're taking me to a t.v. show supposedly, but then flips open a laptop, there's richard mill house nixon, h.r.haldeman in the-value office. this is from the nixon audiotapes. what is cavett, anyway, oh, he's the worst. it's on you tube, you c
's father who lived here in pennsylvania. and who pointed out that none of the leaks in the nsa which is here in maryland, would have occurred if not for the sequester ordered here in washington, d.c. and and reluctantly agreed to by president obama who many right-wingers feel is from kenya. why do we have sequestration in the first place? well, w who is from texas, decided to occupy afghanistan right over here and then go to iraq for causing 9-11 even though most of the hijackers were really from saudi arabia right here. they got bogged down. war is really expensive when you're cutting tax on millionaires. since the u.s. had to pass sequester, the government had to let a lot of its d.c. employees go and all american employees go around the country including snowden who, if he hadn't been fired, would never have wound up at the tech firm, booz allen hamilton here in hawaii where he gave access about the nsa's program. about the firms located here in silicon valley. after whistle blowing "the guardian" based here in london, snowden fled to hong kong all the way over here where he sough
to "viewpoint." edward snowden's leaked revelation about the nsa set off a firestorm of outrage from americans from both the right and the left. president obama tried to douse the flames at his press conference on friday. >> obama: we can and must be more transparent. so i've directed the intelligence community to make public as much information about these programs as possible. we've already declassified unprecedented information about the nsa. but we can go further. >> john: the president said he'll work with congress to reform section 215 of the patriot act which deals with the collection of phone records. he'll also reform oversight of the foreign intelligence surveillance court and make the rationale for the collections public. but is he setting himself up for anotheriation where not much gets done and no one's happy? let's ask the smartest guy in the room, michael tomasky in d.c., a special columnist for "newsweek" and the "daily beast" and has been a treasured guest on our show. welcome back to "viewpoint." >> second smartest guy in the room. >> john: thank you and god bless your low st
